Founder of B-Awake Network, Psycho-Enalysis Center, and LA Sport Psych
Licensed Clinical Psychologist (PSY28761)
The name for B-Awake Network emerged while I was visiting my country of origin Serbia and the Holy Hills of Fruska Gora in May, 2012. However, the idea for a network has been brewing in my conscious and unconscious mind for many years. Soon after I left the Access Intitute for Psychological Services in March 2012 I wanted to establish a space on the web where people can read about therapy and find quality recommendations for psychologists and therapists. B-awake.net is a psychotherapy network of like minded people and a platform for finding reliable practitioners and information about depth psychology and awakening of the psyche.
My passion for psychology and psycho-spiritual development has been burning strong for over twenty years. I was in my late teens when I discovered the magic of spiritual experiences in the Arizona desert, and when I started to study books by Aristotle, Plato, Hermann Hesse, and Carlos Castaneda. Those books were initiations into other ways of knowing about human nature and the universe, which eventually inspired me to study psychology at UCLA and clinical psychology at California Institute of Integral Studies (CIIS), due to body-mind-spirit orientation of the institute.
Ever since magical discoveries in Arizona, I enjoy learning about the human experience, the dark and light aspects, and discovering the most efficient ways of healing and living a fulfilling life. I have been doing psychotherapy for 12 years in various clinical settings as an intern, psychological assistant, and most recently as a licensed clinical psychologist (PSY28761). I graduated from the California Institute of Integral Studies (APA accredited) as a doctor of clinical psychology in December 2011. My bachelorette psychology degree is from UCLA (University of California, Los Angeles). Parallel to mainstream psychology, I have 20 years of experience and training as an energy medicine and energy psychology practitioner.
As I mentioned above for the past 12 years, I have been working in various clinical settings with diverse populations (private practice, psychiatric clinics, and community mental health). My early training as a psychotherapist in training included working with dual diagnosis, bipolar disorder, schizophrenia, and chronic depression. In 2007 at the Pacific Institute in San Francisco, I worked with elderly individuals using existential and process-oriented therapy approaches. At Tenderloin Psychiatric Clinic in 2009, I was trained to work with disadvantaged populations on various issues, from crisis intervention and suicide prevention to working with trauma, psychosis, and drug addiction.
In my post-doctoral position in San Francisco (2012), I worked as a psychological assistant at the Access Institute using a psychoanalytically oriented psychotherapy approach. Many of my patients were high functioning individuals dealing with relationship issues, depression, anxiety, and spiritual crisis/spiritual emergency. In my job as a community psychologist at United American Indian Involvement, Inc., for two years I got to work with Native Americans applying energy psychology techniques, and spiritual training from various traditions.
I recently opened a private practice in Los Angeles called Psycho-Enalysis Center. It is currently my private practice with a vision to grow into a comprehensive energy psychology center with multiple practitioners of various approaches of energy psych. In addition to private sessions, I work as a licensed clinical psychologist (PSY28761) for the CHE Services doing psychotherapy with the elderly population in skilled nursing hospitals.
After many years of direct work with clients, I realized that the essential aspect of making the unconscious conscious is the relationship between a therapist and a client. The rapport between a therapist and a client significantly increases the potential for working through trauma, depression, anxiety, or addiction. Choosing a therapist that you will be able to work with is a critical step in your healing process.
